7:04am
baseball sized hail and for some community, devastation. >> it happened our neighborhood is gone. >> you can see stuff going all through the air. it's just wiped out. trees gone houses completely demolished. >> reporter: officials sowned emergency alarms and urged residents to take cover. but the storm claimed several lives. hood county sheriff roger deeds said there could be more. >> i'm not aware of any kids involved. they are all adults. but i don't have further information other than six adults passed away. >> reporter: local churches opened their doors after the storm, area hospitals are caring for the dozens injured. officials are still surveying the damage. >> we'll be very busy the next couple of days. we have some reports of other areas that have had some damage and we'll be ramping up an operation i'm sure shortly.
7:05am
to assist with that. >> another tornado came through in a town about 45 minutes from here. the town of claiborne. the damage there was extensive. one observer described the tornado as up to a mile wide but the difference there? no casualties reported as of yet. as compared to the killed and injured here. back to you. >> thank you anna. new evidence to report in the boston marathon bombing. a story you will see only on cbs this morning. >> our senior correspond respondentseent john miller is here. tell us what you have learned. >> a very interesting note found in the boat where sfwlok ardzhokhar tsavraev was captured by police. he was in the boat bleeding from multiple wounds. he found a pen, no paper. he wrote on the interior of the cabin. he didn't mourn tamerlan he was
7:06am
a mortare march martyr now. that the bombs were retribution for killing of muslims in iraq and afghanistan. the victims of the boston bombing were collateral damage the same way innocent victims have been collateral damage in u.s. wars around the world. summing up that when you attack one muslim you attack all muslims, and what he has done there is basically written that communique, the claim of responsibility, that investigators didn't find anywhere else after the attack. >> is this a confession? >> it's very interesting in that he admitted much of this to police and the fbi during the time he was interrogated. but before he was given his miranda warnings. in one sense if this ever goes to trial, there is going to be a big fight to keep those
7:07am
statements out. admitting responsibility. in his hand writings in the place where he was alone during that time statements that are admissible. >> does it answer questions about motive? >> well it does. now, it also is consistent with what he told investigators while he was in custody. there it is in black and white, literally. >> he says when you attack one muslim, you attack all muslims. but they still believe he was self-radicalized and not part of a larger group. >> it appears more and more clear this was something put together by his brother and him and not some larger group. >> one final detail the note on the wall of the boat that he scribbled, he thought he was dying. it was riddled with bullets. >> the boat shot hundreds of times, and the note has those in it. >> what is the last big question remaining. >> the last big question remaining, who else knew anything. the wife someone overseas they are moving forward.

7:09am
a job opening at the internal revenue service. it may do little to satisfy critics. president obama called the irs targeting of conservative groups inexcusable. nancy cordes joins us from capitol hill. >> the white house was under pressure to take action fast and show they were taking the situation seriously. so the president met with the treasury secretary and then announced that the head of the irs had been fired. shortly after being fired, the acting commissioner of the irs returned to his home in suburban washington. steven miller 25-year agency veteran had no comment for cameras, but in an international e-mail to irs employees, he wrote, i believe the service will benefit from having a new acting commissioner in place during this challenging period." >> good afternoon, everybody. >> reporter: president obama agreed, and called it the first
7:10am
of several steps needed to restore the public's trust in the irs. a treasury department investigation found the agency had used inappropriate criteria to single out conservative groups with names like tea party, 9-12. >> i hadwill not tolerate this from any agency. >> reporter: two employees in cincinnati have been disciplined. john boehner called their actions criminal. >> my question, who is going to jail over this scandal? >> reporter: four separate congressional committees have scheduled hearings on the scandal. miller told us he would testify. >> we'll talk on friday guys. >> reporter: but that was before the fbi ordered a criminal probe and before miller was let go. republican peter roskam serves on the ways and means committee. >> i would be disappointed if he
7:11am
takes the fifth amendment. an opportunity to clear this up and the question that needs to be answered is who made this decision? we are also told, obviously, over a period of months sort of in dismissive fashion, these things around happening, don't worry yourselves about this sort of thing. no it's actually happened. >> mark owens, former director at the irs, says the agency was wrong to single out certain groups but he doesn't believe any crimes were committed. >> i didn't see anything in the inspector general's report that suggested that the tax law was applied inappropriately to any of these organizations. >> reporter: lawmakers say they still have a lot of questions. who crafted this inappropriate criteria. why did it go on for so long why did the irs deny it despite dozens of letters from members of congress. norah, charlie. >> the white house trying to answer critics on benghazi. the obama administration
7:12am
released 100 pages of e-mails and notes. bill plante at the white house. what do the e-mails show. >> good morning, and good morning out west. these same e-mails were given to congress months ago and republicans have been selectively leaking them. using the information to fuel arguments that the white house held information for political reasons, the white house has gotten very frustrated over there and they have released what they say are the full set of e-mails. in the original drafts of the talking points the cia said the assault may have been spontaneously inspired by the protests at the u.s. embassy in cairo. u.n. ambassador susan rice would repeat that two days later. >> it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> reporter: the first version acknowledged extremists with ties to al qaeda participated in the attack and that there had been at least five other attacks
7:13am
against foreign interests in benghazi in the previous six months. but after several revisions, those details never made it into the final draft. after a meeting at the white house, deputy cia director michael morell scratched them out. he was worried naming the terror groups would unnecessarily influence the fbi investigation. the state department spokeswoman victoria nuland urged the threats be removed, worried that the information could be abused by members of congress. david petraeus wanted the warnings made public. in one e-mail he wrote, frankly, i would just as soon not use this then. the e-mails released to counter criticism from the republicans that the white house intentionally deleted the reference to al qaeda to spare president obama embarrassment during his re-election campaign. >> what i want is the truth. >> reporter: the e-mails seem to
7:14am
support the administration that they made few changes and didn't intend a coverup. the white house cleared quickly but the state has major concerns. >> suddenly three days ago, this gets spun up as if there is something new to the story. there is no there there. >> reporter: but even if the white house had little involvement, it does show an internal battle between the state department and cia, neither of which wanted to be the focus of criticism this isn't the end by any means, the issue will come up when the president has a news conference two hours from now, and republicans are urging the white house to release more documents. they say they will call witnesses, this isn't going away. charlie, norah. >> bill plante thank you. president obama will meet with the joint chiefs to deal with the ng problem of sexual assault in the military. two military officers accused of sexual misconduct both men in
7:15am
charge of preventing those types of crimes. we'll talk about kristen gil gillibrand, she is introducing legislation aimed at cracking down on the problem. joining us now bob schieffer. good morning. >> good morning. >> you have seen lots of second terms this one on a big political victory, wanting to do things, and then there is picture one of intrusive government and a president who seems like a bystander in his own government. >> yeah people were talking in washington. are we back to the nixon administration? this is what they did in the nixon administration. this is not the nixon administration where you have burglars and people talking about blowing up the brookings institution. this is more of a case is anybody home? all of a sudden you have this thing with the justice department. they are over there getting all these phone records of all of the reporters, the attorney general, he didn't know anything about it. you get to the irs, they don't
7:16am
seem to know anything about the tea party thing. come to the white house, they don't know anything about benghazi. somebody has to grab hold of this thing, and i mean you know it's -- it's very very disturbing what we're seeing here. >> what do you make of the president's actions yesterday. dealt with all three things yesterday, fired the head of the irs, released 100 pages of e-mails that deal with benghazi and the third scandal, the snooping into the ap reporter phone records, the president put out he's for a shield law for journalists, the white house took a lot of proactive action yesterday. >> they did. but it was yesterday. i mean why -- how is it these things -- nobody seems to have been taking them very seriously up to this point. no question though that the administration was trying to get the story out that the war on terrorism, the threat of terrorism had been lessened it wasn't as serious as it had been pictured. and that erupt into this thing
7:17am
with all of the e-mails. we see at the state department the spokesman there is aing my higher ups in the building are worried about this. which higher ups? why were the higher ups worried? >> you are speaking about victoria nuland and in the e-mails back and forth, saying my higher ups are worried about this. the question is was it the secretary of state? hillary clinton? >> we still don't know the answer to that pretty easy thing, obviously. the president did the right thing in letting the temporary head of the irs go. but what happens now? where does this go from here? that should not have happened. >> it all stems -- goes to the center of government the oval office, doesn't it? the president has to take control of his own government. >> you know that's where you are seeing some of the criticism now. you know there is no question the situation in washington is toxic as i've ever seen it. but are you now seeing those on the left saying you know the president has got to start
7:18am
participating in the presidency i believe is the way that dana millvak framed it in "the washington post." the president has some serious problems here. if he can't get a hold of this he won't get anything done in the second term. that's the bottom line. >> bob schieffer, thank you. the purple tie looks nice. >> thank you. >> you too, charlie. >> everybody in purple. >> i look for guidance in fashion from schieffer. >> be sure to watch "face the nation" sunday mornings right here on cbs. time to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. the first in stem cell research. scientists used cloning to use human embryos. but it comes with ethical questions and fears about human clones. "the new york times" says the u.s. is hinting at another military strike in syria. los angeles times, nasa is

7:31am
simpson has changed. >> reporter: looking every one of his almost 66 years, o.j. simpson took the witness stand in a las vegas courtroom yesterday. his hands and legs in shackles. even pouring himself a cup of water was difficult, but it seemed easy for him to recall the 2008 trial that led to a minimum nine-year sentence. >> did you think that you were acting legally? >> yes, i did. >> reporter: simpson was convicted for his part in an armed confrontation in a las vegas hotel room. he says he didn't know his co-defendants were armed when they attempted to retrieve memorabilia he claims were his. >> well it was my stuff. my lawyer told me you can't break into a guy's room. i didn't break into anybody's room. i didn't beat up anybody. i didn't try to muscle the guys, i didn't. >> reporter: his lawyer in 2008 was yale glandalanter. he said galanter said it was okay to retrieve the memorabilia. he also says galanter wrongly
7:32am
in his own defense and perhaps most importantly failed to inform simpson about a possible plea deal for much less prison time. >> if you knew that you could be convicted on all the charges, would you have taken it? >> of course. >> reporter: through a whole day of questioning, simpson remained calm and surprisingly at ease. >> the media, you know i mean i've spent the last four and a half years the most uneventful four and a half years of my life. yet i've been headlines in the media. i'm getting married to a guy. i got beat up by skinheads. >> reporter: it's a stark contrast to the more belligerent o.j. we saw the last time he took the stand, during the 1996 civil trial for the wrongful death of nicole brown simpson and ron goldman. >> i know that one could never really use the word "humble" in connection with o.j. simpson, but he seems to be somewhat humbled by what he's been through. >> your voice is pretty loud in
7:33am
the room. >> my voice is always loud. >> our strategy was just you know, get up there and tell the truth and you'll be fine. >> reporter: simpson completed his testimony yesterday. the hearing deciding o.j.'s fate is expected to end tomorrow. for "cbs this morning," i'm bill whitaker in los angeles. jack ford knows o.j. simpson and has covered simpson's legal fights over the past two decades. good morning. >> good morning. >> what did you think of o.j. on the stand? >> here's what you have to say about o.j. whether you think he's a killer or not, he's a very charismatic, compelling guy. if you spend any time talking with him, you'd walk away saying well he's my friend i'm interested in talking with him. ike i think you saw on the stand that charisma and that compelling testimony. >> regardless of how charismatic he is, how compelling is his argument? >> it's interesting. they have got a couple of very intriguing arguments. what you have to learn is they haveioned for writ of
7:34am
habeus corpus. he's had all his appeals and been turned down. this is his last chance. usually they're just tossed out. very few are ever granted. if i'm o.j. and his lawyer the fact that a judge is intrigued to do a hearing and take some testimony at least has to make them think they have something of a shot. it raises a couple of issues. we heard that a couple of moments ago in the piece. he's claiming that my lawyer didn't tell me there's a deal on the table. if that's in fact so that could be a real problem. and he's saying my lawyer didn't allow me to testify, and my testify would have been i got the okay from my lawyer. my lawyer said it's okay to go in and take the stuff if it's mine. again, would it have made a difference? we can't say yes, but it could have had an impact on a jury if in fact that's all true and if he said it. >> what's the next step? >> you're going to hear from the lawyer. what about lawyer confidentiality? once o.j. gets on the stand and
7:35am
tells the story, confidentiality is done. so they'll ask his lawyer did in fact you hold back from him a plea deal? and did in fact you advise him legally it was okay for him to go in and do this? and if he says yes, then everybody is agreeing the judge is going to have to wrestle with it. if he says no then you've got conflicting testimony and who knows what a judge ends up doing. >> thank you jack. the small sport utility vehicle is the modern version of the station wagon but safety experts say the average car may be safer than some of those suvs. a tougher crash test is exposing their safety flaws. this is the kind of crash that experts say causes 25% of serious injuries or deaths in frontal collisions. >> when we look back out at the real world crash data there's a crash mode that's not been accounted for, and it's called small overlap. >> reporter:y a portion of the front bumper is involved in these types of crashes, but that
7:36am
can effectively bypass some of the safety mechanisms automakers already have in place. the insurance institute for highway safety recently started testing these crashes and the results for small suvs are out this morning. >> we're a little disappointed that only two vehicles performed well out of the 13 in this test. >> reporter: according to the iihs, the 2014 subaru forrester performed best followed by the 2013 mitsubishi outlander sport. >> i think what these tests show is that a large majority of the small suv manufacturers have a lot of work to do to improve the performance in this crash mode. >> reporter: the ford escape had the worst safety results. in a statement to cbs news ford said it takes seriously every industry development related to vehicle crash performance and is reviewing the test results. others that received a poor overall rating were the jeep patriot, the buick encore the kia sportage and the hyundai
7:37am
tucson. >> i think some of them are resigned to not getting the best results, but are working internally to improve it in the next generation. >> reporter: and it's important to note, most of the suvs that performed poorly have done relatively well in other types of crash tests. for "cbs this morning," chip reid, washington. and the card game made famous by james bond is facing a scandal. you'll see one american that's accused of the biggest crime in gambling. and tomorrow on "cbs this morning" -- >> i'm mark phillips. these are letters written 70 years ago by a prisoner of war with secret code in them that's taken experts until now to crack. that story tomorrow on "cbs this morning."

7:44am
cards. ivey and his friend said they were just being superstitious but the casino said it was to get a better look at the telltale flaws. once ivey new the value of the cards with the defects, he could then make big bets when those cards were redealt. >> on this side of the card there's a bigger diamond than on this side fdof the card. these small diamonds show that these cards are now the 5 through 0 cards. >> reporter: phil zender is a security consultant for the gaming industry. >> probably 70% of the decks of cards have some type of flaw where it could be -- whether it could be used against the casino is another thing. >> reporter: they studied surveillance footage. ivey strongly denied he did anything wrong and sued earlier this month. in a statement he said the fact that i've issued a lawsuit in the face of what they are alleging says everything about how comfortable i am with my
7:45am

8:04am
the note said he did not mourn the death of his brother tamerlan tsarnaev and he said he's now a martyr and dzhokhar would soon join him. dzhokhar also wrote that the bombings were inspired by attacks on muslims. he called the victims in boston collateral damage. the message was written on the inside of the boat. the head of the internal revenues service had nothing to say this monk steven miller was asked to resign yesterday. it's the first major change after irs had admitted to targeting conservative groups. the president said americans have a right to be angry. >> i'll do everything in my power to make sure nothing like this happens again. by holding the responsible parties accountable, by putting in place new checks and new safe guards and going forward by making sure that the laws applied as it should be. >> the president is due to answer questions at a news conference later today. on capitol hill the questions got a little heated

chairman martin dempsey said women are losing confidence in their military leaders. kristen gillibrand is saying it would make changes in how sexual assaults are prosecuted. >> good morning. >> we saw this report that sexual assaults are up 35%. and disturbing news this morning, that the man who is in charge at prevention the ft. hood may have been running a prostitution ring. what the heck is going on? >> well that story is disgraceful and outrageous. and what we have here is a problem. we have arguably 26,000 assaults a year but only about 3,000 are even reported and only a handful go to trial and result in conviction. so what we need to do is change the system so victims know that they can receive justice. what we heard from the victims is that they fear retaliation. they fear they'll be marginalized or their careers will be over or they'll be
8:07am
blamed themselves. we need to create a culture under which they can report the crimes and have them investigated and prosecuted. we believe we have to take this out of the chain of command and allow the reporting and decision making whether to go to trial with the lawyers. the trained prosecutors who understand sexual assault within the military and can actually hopefully receive justice in these cases. >> do you believe that legislation can change a culture, or there must be a deeper look into what culture predict -- produces this kind of result? >> i think it's a very broad-based problem. and it's not a new problem. but what we do know if we can begin to create accountability and transparency in the system where victims see that justice is possible you'll have greater reporting. when you have greater reporting, it means you'll have more investigations. more trials and more convictions. and so as they see justice being done, i think things will change. >> senator i remember when you started these hearings i certainly heard your passion and felt your passion.
8:08am
it makes common sense to most civilians that your boss does not decide what happens with a co-worker. why is there such resistance do you think in the military? >> well it just hasn't been done this way. secretary hagel came out a few weeks ago and said no longer does he believe the chain of command should be overturning jury verdicts. similarly do we believe that no longer should the chain of command be deciding whether to go to trial. those should be done through a judicial system. a repeal system and also we have jag lawyers who are trained in this to know whether a trial should go forward or not. what the commanders to enforce this remain intact and they continue to command the troops but for these victims to receive justice in these cases we need to take it out of the chain of command. >> all right. good to see you. britain's prince harry has finished a week-long tour to the united states. the official visit had none of

8:31am
this year is down 8% from last year. but that couple needs $220,000 for care over the rest of their lives. "the new york times" looks at fast food delivery on the gaza strip. it's complicated, costly and really not all that fast. smugglers bring the food in through a tunnel. a bucket of kentucky fried chicken runs $27. and it takes four hours to arrive. >> that's going to be some soggy chicken. "usa today" says the postal service is naming the cities where letter carriers are being bitten boy dogs the most. los angeles tops the list. there were 69 dog bites there last year. san antonio and seattle tie for second with 42. followed by chicago. >> and the "new york post" says a topless painting of bea arthur has sold for nearly $2 million. it was auctioned off last night. the buyer is anonymous. the painting is by john curran. can you see it charlie? women in provocative positions.
8:32am
arthur did not sit for the portrait but i wish they had a shot of charlie in the studio going what is that? so here's the question. >> when you said topless woman, all of a sudden charlie goes -- >> so the question is where does one hang a topless photo of bea arthur in their home? any suggestions, charlie? >> no. i don't. i was looking to see if it was a younger bea arthur. >> no you don't. no you didn't. >> anyway can we move on? >> let's, move on and change topics. >> you started it. >> this is a serious story. in phoenix, a woman convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend is one step closer to death. a jury found jodi arias killed travis alexander in an especially cruel manner and that makes her eligible for the death penalty. >> jurors must decide if they will recommend execution. arias' interview with "48 hours" played a key role in the case.
8:33am
maureen maher has covered the story from the beginning. >> reporter: criminal attorney linda kenny baden who worked on the defense teams of casey anthony and phil spector has seen more than her share of murders, but few like this. >> this showed that she was incredibly angry young woman. >> what piece of evidence sticks out the most in your mind? >> well, the piece of evidence that to me is amazing is the slit neck wound. >> why? >> because it was the ultimate control over him. he wasn't going to say anything bad to her ever again. to me that was just vicious. >> reporter: since her arrest in yreka, california, in 2008 jodi has always insisted that she did not viciously murder travis alexander. but her details of how he died have changed repeatedly. >> i think i was inconsistent in my lies yes. >> so let's take a look at what
8:34am
you may have said to "48 hours." >> reporter: in the 25 years that it's been on the air, this is the first time a "48 hours" interview has been used as evidence in a death penalty trial. >> hit on the back of the head. i don't think i was out very long. but when i came to travis was on all fours on the tile. >> jodi gave us secrets in those interviews. she gave us insight into what she was thinking. >> in the bathroom standing over travis and i charged her. >> reporter: she talks about having a fight with the woman and describes the woman who attacked travis as being about her height and caucasian. well, that's her. >> i ran down that hall and i pushed her as hard as i could and she fell over him. >> she then talks about power later on in that interview and talks about having a gun. >> they just kept arguing back and forth whether or not, you know to kill me. >> and if somebody has a gun to
8:35am
your head, you have the ultimate power. >> it's like everything just stops when you -- when someone else is sitting there with a gun pointed to your head deciding your fate. >> i think a lot of what she was saying about what happened was what happened with her and travis the day he died. >> maureen maher is with us now. it's now up for the jury to decide. you've been covering this case for a long time. what do you think they'll do? >> i think there's almost no question that they will go for the death penalty. she certainly meets the requirements for it. but what's going to be different this time around all the salacious details everyone has been focusing in on for the last few months now it's going to be a lot of sadness. parents are going to be getting up and pleading for one way or the other. either put her to death or save my child. >> do you think the jury has some kind of connection to her? i remember during the case i had never seen a case where the jury questioned the defendant directly. i had never seen that before. >> there are only three states that allow jurors to do it.
8:36am
several others recommend but this is the one that really allows them to do it. the fact that they addressed her by first name they didn't call her defendant, they didn't say miss arias, they all addressed their questions jodi how could you do this? how could you kiss another man after you had just done that to travis? it was very personal to this jury. that may work to her favor because someone may feel too close of a connection to her. even though they feel she's guilty they may not be able to put her to death. >> maureen maher, thank you very much. you can see maureen's full report on "48 hours" that airs 10:00, 9:00 central right here on cbs. charlie. bono is not only a music legend, he is also a concerned global citizen and he thinks the problem of poverty can be beaten. >> why poverty? you coul chosen this disease or that disease, but you say that's the ultimate evil here. >> i have been working for
8:37am
nelson mandela since i was about 18 years old. and mandela says you know he says poverty is not a natural condition. it is man made. this is your chance to eradicate it. not pushing this idea of charity at all, but actually it's injustice. so i've always been on the justice kick rather than a charity one. >> what's the model to attack poverty and disease wherever you find it but especially in africa? >> maybe by not stressing the word. for example, the united states it's a heroic story. you are way out in front in the fight against aids. of the eight million people over eight million people that are on anti-viral drugs, most of them are alive because of americans, so americans know that term. do people know that they're part

of this incredible story? to me this is heroic as your intervention in the second world war. >> right, right. right. >> and no lives down just lives saved. >> you have to have a complex to do what you want to do. you've got to believe it in yourself. you've got to believe it's possible. >> well first of all, anyone who finds their way to the front of a rock band standing in the spotlight, the center of the stage is definitely and the shy one oh how did this happen to me? they're the very worst kind. i am a salesman. i come from a long line of traveling salespeople on my mother's side. i think i'm a good salesman of

him. nobody. >> yeah. >> you walked away from him feeling what? >> well, here is a man who's at the top of his game and his game is life. it is music, but it is also making a difference. and he's right, poverty does something that -- it affects your health it affects everything. and what he does is he uses his own celebrity to go butt heads with people in power. >> what were you going to say, norah? >> his one campaign which is how he does this is incredible. >> you can see the full interview with bono on charlie rose, you know he has another show tonight on cbs. you can check your local listings. channel 7.3 at my house. the cast of the new cbs comedy "we are men" join us next.
